Drew Hutton’s Australian Story: The Greens, Lock the Gate and an acupuncture cameo


Australian storyThis week you MUST watch ABC TV’s Australian Story.

The courageous and dedicated Drew Hutton shares his story of environmental activism, in particular his involvement in the Lock the Gate movement to protect valuable farming land from the coal seam gas industry. He speaks about the incredible toll his commitment to this work has taken on his relationships and health.

Which leads us to the acupuncture cameo. Around about 20 minutes in you may see some footage of Drew being treated for peripheral neuropathy with acupuncture by yours truly. I’m not one to usually draw attention to these things but it’s not everyday that acupuncture makes it onto national television.

I’m glad to have had the opportunity (alongside the team at Acupuncture & Natural Therapy Centre) to help a great man who has given so much for the greater good.

View the entire Australian Story “Lock me Away” here. (Be quick – it won’t be on iView for long.)

    Would be most interested to see a post on how acupuncture can help peripheral neuropathy, as would other sufferers.

    Hi Sarah! I saw this and did see it. We are fighting Santos and CSG at home too. It was lovely to see you last Sunday night. x

      Hi Sarah! Super to see you and meet the boys as well at the airport. Such a lovely surprise. CSG is everywhere. We need to look after Drew.
